Snoots you, sir

What I remember best about our one-off at Washington University in St. Louis on this day in 1993 is James and I sharing a heaping order of snoots in the student center where our show took place.  Consulting my notes, I am reminded that later that night we debuted “Shaker” and, still later, were joined on drums by “Len” (so say my records) for not just “Cast a Shadow,” but a never-heard-before, never-heard-again cover of “Empty Heart.”  I’m sure we had our reasons.    By comparison, bringing Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci onstage on the first night of our 2004 tour together, in their hometown of Cardiff, to perform “Rebel Rebel” makes perfect sense, what with it being St. David’s Day.
